Warning: Contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8, episode 5.
You may have been a largely unpleasant character, but your final moments still brought a tear to our eyes.
Well, the good news is this: although the Cersei is now nothing more than a memory, Lena Headey lives on.
On Monday night, the actor took to Instagram to bid farewell to her character.
There she goes. It’s been fun, and bonkers . I loved her. I am grateful for the opportunity. Massively thankful for your encouraging and supportive love along the way. And now her watch is ended (I know she’d never make it, knights watch wouldn’t have her .. but still..) 💗💗💗💗💗💗

She followed that up this morning with some behind-the-scenes shots and videos — the first of which is particularly glorious.
When we weren’t on a parapet ….

Meanwhile, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (aka Jaime Lannister) shared a tribute of his own (swipe right).
